Good thing I bet that over. The Inter side play was doomed.
Stan the Man (silly Serb) scores the most amazing goal ever, 20 seconds in. I go crazy...
STAN THE MAN!!! CLICK HERE!!!!
The next 89 minutes were ruined by the absolute worst defensive play I've ever seen from my beloved Nerazzurri. Schalke hung 5 on our back line. Chivu sucks, and his little helmet makes him look stupid. Andrea Ranocchia looked like a deer in headlights the entire match. I love Zanetti, but I love him in the midfield...not as one of our fullbacks to be relied on for the occasional D. Even Maicon is a liability back there. It looked like we were wearing cement shoes on set pieces. Michel Therrien thought the Inter defense was soff...
So combine Schalke's 5-2 win with a 4-nil Real Madrid victory over Tottenham, and this basically adds up to a meaningless day of Champions League footie next Wednesday, when these 4 meet for the 2nd leg. Good thing the NHL Playoffs start that day.
TODAY'S CL GAMES:
Let's hope they are better than yesterday's. Scratch that, at least in the Barca match. I'm going to ride my buddy RandoMango's coat tails here, and lay the 2 goals against Shakhtar. Messi and Xavi are rested. And with La Liga pretty much sealed, full focus (if it wasn't already) can be put here.
The Chelsea / Man Utd game appears to have more cracker potential. I'm playing the draw, which would be a good result for Man Utd.
btw: props to my witty pal gbvh for the headline :) i wish i could take credit.
